Citroën C3 gets a makeover in South Africa with its Indian version

New Citroën C3 in South Africa: Dynamic design and impressive features

Citroën is taking full advantage of the signing of the agreement with the port of Kimarajar to greatly expand the marketing of the C3, which for the first time is leaving the South-East Asian region for Africa, where it is making its debut. its marketing in South Africa.

Directly from the Thiruvallur plant in India, this new C3 arrives in South Africa, where it will allow Citroën to benefit from a car better suited to the needs of consumers and sold at more affordable prices.

Indian Citroën C3 arrives in South Africa with style and performance

This Indian Citroën C3 has a unique 82 hp 1.2 Puretech engine coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox; the 110 hp turbo engine was not chosen because of the desire to offer the lowest possible prices. . However, Citroën does not offer the rather bare Live Access version, preferring to offer a single Feel finish which has the following equipment

  • LED daytime running lights

  • Height-adjustable driver's seat

  • electric windows

  • Roof rails

  • Front and rear mudguards

  • Steering wheel audio controls

  • Three USB ports

  • Manual climate control

  • Keyless entry

  • ABS with EBD

  • 2 front airbags

  • Rear parking sensors

In addition to this equipment, the Citroën C3 Feel also has a 10-inch touchscreen with the new multimedia system, compatible with Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, which is a real plus for this C3 at a price of 229,900 rands or 10,900 euros. The Indian C3 thus replaces the European C3 currently on sale in South Africa, with a better level of equipment, particularly in terms of the touchscreen, but above all with a lower selling price of 76,000 Rands or 3,600 €!

We can therefore see the very positive effect of manufacturing the C3 in India, which makes it possible to offer a vehicle adapted to local consumers, with more modern equipment, at a much lower price, but with the same engine. With this new C3, Citroën will be able to attract more customers, who will benefit from a car that can take on the road in any condition.
